Iowa is holding a special election in District 12 to fill the Iowa Senate seat vacated by Joni Ernst, elected to the U.S. Senate last November. The Libertarian candidate, Donald Brantz, running against Republican Mark Costello and Democrat Steven Adams, has a slight problem: he's wanted in Sarpy County, Nebraska for 3rd degree sexual assault, interfering with a public service company and disturbing the peace. All charges are misdemeanors.
Brantz, a former social worker, is a Libertarian — with a vengeance, we'd guess.
May the best man win.
